Saint Linus (79)

Saint Linus was the second Pope of the Catholic Church. He ruled from the year 67 to the year 79, a period of twelve years. He was a Gentile. He shed his blood for the Faith which Saint Peter preached. After he was martyred he was buried beside Saint Peter in Rome. His name is mentioned in the Roman Canon of the Mass. He raised a dead man to life. He made the rule that women should wear veils or, at least, a head covering in church. This was in honor of Saint Michael, the great Archangel who escorted Our Lady into Heaven on the day of her Assumption.
